Clinton sizes up Obama, Edwards candidacies
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-New York, has told Democratic supporters in private conversations that her two biggest obstacles for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination are Illinois Sen. Barack Obama and former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards, The New York Times reported Wednesday on its website.

But Clinton believes Obama's popularity will decline when the depth of his political experience is called into question, the Times reports.

The Times also reports Democrats in the meetings walked away with a sense that Sen. Clinton left "little doubt that she plans to run, without saying so directly."
